Owler, a tracking company that offers a service it calls competitive intelligence, is stepping out of its comfort zone of monitoring companies in similar industries, and, quite frankly, veering away from the entire concept of intelligence, with a new report that claims to look into the future to predict which unicorns are going to fail.

Don’t fear the down round: What HBO’s Silicon Valley gets right and wrong about negotiating a lower valuation

While the unevenness of the jokes in last Sunday’s season two premiere of HBO’s Silicon Valley, “Sand Hill Shuffle,” really can’t be debated, the viability of one of the episode’s major plot lines definitely warrants further examination.

The TIME 100, which celebrates mass murderers, dictators, and the occasional tech founder, needs to be stopped
